FRIDAY 11 FEBRUARY: THE SIDE ENTRANCE TO THE SOUND STUDIO / VERYON WESTON, TISA N. HERLEC, LUKAS SIMONAS

BROADCAST/LIVE EVENT
1500-1700

In a 2-hour special of The Side Entrance, this week’s Sound Studio residents Veryan Weston, Lukas Simonis and Tisa N. Herlec, join together with keys and strings and words; knowledge, groove and poetry. As always on The Side Entrance, this promises to be a journey into the unknown where we expect the unexpected to blossom!

This will be the first time the three will have worked together, a fresh first encounter. They’ll play live sounds, discuss their processes and thoughts on improvisation, composition, creativity and imagination. And, of course, collaboration.

Sunday 13 February: Peggy Verzett: Snow Eggs book launch with Lieuwe Zelle

BROADCAST/LIVE EVENT
1500-1700

Lieuwe Zelle invites poet Peggy Verzett for an on-air and in-person launch for her new poetry collection Sneeuweieren/Snow Eggs, published by Jap Sam Books (Prinsenbeek).

A cookbook-that-doesn’t-fit-the-genre, Sneeuweieren/Snow Eggs presents seven dishes for different mental states. It’s a cookbook that harks back to alchemy. Because the imperative mood is so annoying and needs to be exploited. Because the world of the psyche has endless contents that all want to feel they’re being fed.To launch this bilingual edition, translated from Dutch to English by Pim Wiersinga and designed by Paul Bogaers, Peggy and Lieuwe make a soundscape from a recipe; play synths; and talk.Peggy Verzett (1958) is a poet, painter and singer. She made her debut at publishing house Van Oorschot in Amsterdam, with Prijken die buik. In 2010, Vissing, was published by Querido. Haar Vliegstro, appeared in 2016. Her fourth collection of poetry will be published in 2022. ‘Poetry can communicate before it is understood’, said T.S. Elliot. This quote has become her artistic mantra; sometimes hermetics as well as supple playfulness are present in her work.
